The flower buds of sassafras and dogwood are visibly swelling. Sassafras flowers, both male and female, should be open any day, with the return of warm weather.
Today brought chilly and rainy weather as a cold front pushed against warmer air.
Flowers on our rabbit-eye blueberries are ready to open, and quince flowers are already visible.
This was March 6, 2012 -- with a sassafras in full flower.
